Another week has flown by and it's time for another Paint Party Friday.
I used the same colours to make two pages in my art journal. I showed the right side with the fire lady on Tuesday, and now it's time for the left side. I used various stencils to add the numerals, alphas and hovering ladies. The other patterns have been stamped.
This is a WIP. I am trying to paint a photo I took from my balcony some weeks back. I used thinned acrylics to paint it, as I wanted the structure of the canvas to stay visible, and then added more colour with pastels.
I still need to do more work on it before it is finished and I can use it as a journal cover.
Yesterday I went for a walk to an old and rather dilapidated villa, standing in a park about half an hour's walk from here. This is another place which is slowly decaying because nothing is being done. There are several modern art 'sculptures' in the grounds.
I like the feeling of movement in this one, and that the ivy is growing over it.
This is an enormous sheet of rusty iron, the colours of which fit well with the autumn leaves.
The other side has unfortunately been spoiled by graffiti.
I couldn't really find anything I liked about this one, a huge block of concrete, also badly spoiled with graffiti.
But it was an interesting walk, just such a pity that so many historical sites are being allowed to fall into disrepair.
Have a great day, take care, and thanks a lot for coming by!
